Kay Zigmont


Kay’s love of the arts began in grade school when she was selected to paint a mural on a school wall. Since that time, she has explored many different mediums which include watercolour, oil, acrylic and most recently stone and bronze sculpting.

In the early ‘90’s, her interest in the art of sculpting had evolved into creative expressionism. By integrating the natural beauty of stone with the strength of metal, her pieces seem to come alive with fluidity and movement.

Kay has also been painting for many years, starting with Chinese watercolours and evolving to abstract expressionism in acrylics whose colours are vibrant as opposed to the subtlety of watercolours.

She is fascinated by the different properties of all these mediums from the transparency of watercolours and the softness of acrylics to the aliveness of stone and the strength of bronze. She firmly believes that art is truly the universal language, transcending country, culture and customs and feels honoured that she is a participant in the world of creativity, dreams and imagination.

Artist’s Statement:

“Art is the universal language transcending country, culture and custom. To those who are attuned, art speaks to their heart and feeds their soul. I work with bronze, a metal which appears solid/strong and acrylic paints which are soft/flowing; each attracts with their own beautiful oratory. Sculptures appeal to the tactile, visual senses and, like original paintings, both appeal to the longing within us, whatever that may be. I create through images of form and colour and would like to share this with you in the hope of taking you, if just for a moment, to a place where beauty resides within all of us."
